Warming up at work this evening. It was freezing inside the concert hall, so I headed out to the benches between Mara Hall and the MS Art Museum. I love sitting there and warming up; a very favorable tuba spot. Yes, that is a Holton 6/4 BAT. I am a pretty big boy...

Courtesy of Jim Newell (aka the Tubameister of Eugene) my new to me King sousaphone. My "sweat equity" contributions were to strip the valveset of lacquer and to remove some of the bracing, using a torch. Jim was able to patch the holes quite nicely :oops:

Slightly pornographic - my newly restored (by Dan Schultz) Alexander BBb. Looks as good as it plays now.

Oh, I enjoy it :-) And use it regular at the moment in a Brass Band

I asked the question here "what do you mean by fun to play?" I get it!
A tad challenging intonation wise in lower register. The 3rd partial open F
was trivial. I was more surprised by the sharp below staff C

Other than that, it plays easily chromatic down to BBb only by using
one privileged tone for ease of use (Cc on 3rd).

Didn't know I'd enjoy this instrument so much. And VERY impressed by
the mid register and upper/above staff
